About the Book:
HOME FOR THE HOLIDAYS - a heartwarming Christmas novella about true friendship, helping those in need, and falling in love. . .What's a girl to do when she falls in love with her lifelong best friend? Small town librarian Lauren Forrester moves to St. Louis so that handsome contractor Jeffrey Warren can find a wife without having to deal with Lauren's moods. But when Jeffrey shows up on her doorstep to convince her to come home for a country Christmas, will the hardheaded pair lose their friendship or find something even more precious?
I got this when it was an Amazon Freebie, though it is not free at the time I am writing this (in July). It's an old story--they have been best friends forever. Each is secretly in love with the other, afraid to take the next step for fear of losing the friendship. Toss in Lauren doing a good deed for a family in distress and you have all the makings of a charming Christmas read. Grade: B- (sweet, charming, not very original).
